Massage Therapy

 

Enfield Health & Wellness CenterMassage Therapy is the manual manipulation of muscles and soft tissue by applying pressure to the body with the goal of positively affecting health and well being of the patient.

Massage comes to us from many cultures and is perhaps the oldest method of natural healing.

 

The Benefits of Massage Therapy Include:

  • Massage is very effective in the relief of pain and discomfort, whether due to health issues or to chronic stress.
  • Massage can in some patients cause a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate due to reflex effects through the sympathetic nervous system. Reflex effects include muscle relaxation, relief of spasms and cramps and increased range of motion.
  • Massage calms the nervous system.
  • The Lymphatic system can be stimulated by massage. It can also strengthen the immune system. As well as increase blood circulation.
  • Massage increases oxygenation to the tissues

Conditions that can be helped by massage:

  • Neck Pain
  • Arm, shoulder, elbow, wrist or hand pain
  • Mid back / Rib pain
  • Low back or disc pain
  • Hip, leg, knee, ankle or foot pain
  • Headaches
  • Stress and/or tension
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Work and other traumatic accident
  • Auto accidents / whiplash
  • Sports Injuries
